Arnold and Dudley's New Best Friend, Mr.Horton
13 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Arnold and Dudley are lured into the carefully planned trap of a child molester, Mr. Horton. Mr.Horton runs the local bike shop. I learned to never go to that bike shop from this episode. Mr. Horton is a great villain he likes luring children into his back room and giving kids wine and pills. His favorite thing to do is to skinny dip with kids and take pictures of them. Arnold and Dudley decide to go to the bathroom where Mr. Horton washes them in the shower playing "Neptune King of the Sea". Mr.Horton really likes kids. Dudley is Mr. Horton's best friend in the episode. Mr. Horton decides to give Dudley a little pill which will make him feel good. Mr. Horton has a collection of naked pictures. He likes to give kids wine and tells them not to tell their parents because it's their little secret. Mr. Horton's favorite cartoon is Murphy the Mouse where Murphy takes off all of his clothes.
